There are some screws inside that you can remove and make the buttons loose a bit.

I know not everyone have the skill to do this but changing to the japanese omron switches really does make a huge difference. For some mice, loosening or tightening screws might make a difference.

Open the switch (you can make it with a needle, don't lose parts), gently push this plate so that it bends. Do this until the click becomes light enough

Sand down the shell in the inside a little bit, and/or solder in D2F-01F's. My ZA12 is modified this way and the clicks are way better than on a stock one.

The top buttons of the mouse are attached to the shell with plastic and 3 screws, If you remove the screws its only plastic, and its enough no keep things in place, but the buttons will loose a bit of pressure.

This picture is not mine, some zowie mice dont even have the screws, but when I opened my ZA13 there was 3, on these red circles you see on the picture.
